Spanish term or phrase: filtros conos of bruja
Another strange one:
This is to do with oil platforms in Mexico:

La contratista proporcionará todos los materiales temporales para efectos de pruebas no destructivas, lavados y verificación de continiuidad en circuitos y sistema; como son comales, empaques, esparragos, tuercas, circuitos de tuberias, válvulas de sacrificio, antiferrantes, grasa, silenciadores, ***filtros conos de bruja***, medios filtrantes,inhibidores, trapo limpio, entre otros.

Hogh cone filter (?)
Explanation:
Vaya laberinto en el que te metiste... soy de México, y no le entiendo nada... sé lo que es un comal, y un espárrago, pero no en tu contexto... ahora bien, por deducción, un filtro "cono de bruja" seguramente se refiere a un filtro en forma de sombrero que llevan las brujas, alto y puntiagudo. No sé, "high cone filter", o algo así...
Que haya suerte.
Juan.
